A New York City hotel is hoping to help Phillies fans drown their sorrows if the Phillies lose World Series games at Yankee Stadium. Hotel Indigo NYC Chelsea, on West 28th St., announced a "Drown Your Sorrows" promotion. If you book a room for the night of any World Series game at Yankee Stadium, present your ticket stub and a valid drivers' license to prove you live in the city of Philadelphia and that you are 21 or over, and you'll receive a complimentary bottle of Perrier-Jouet champagne.

Team Canada's victory parade, alas, will not go up Broad Street. Brian Propp and Rick Tocchet were feted this morning in civic ceremonies from their coach seats on a 9 a.m. flight home. But seeing the two Flyers curled up together in a relatively quiet corner of the champagne-soaked locker room, passing a bottle after winning the Canada Cup last night, was very much a Philadelphia moment. Propp has been to the Stanley Cup finals three times in his eight Flyer seasons and Tocchet twice in his three.

The television lights had already been hung from the ceiling of the Pirates' clubhouse. The champagne was chilled. Pittsburgh wouldn't celebrate this night, though. The Atlanta Braves won, 1-0, to extend the National League Championship Series to a seventh and final game. And while the Pirates' room was subdued, the more noticeable emotion was something quite different and a little unexpected. Player after player talked about how much fun it has been to play in a series in which so many games have been decided by the slimmest of margins.

Allez la France! As the world knows, France beat Brazil, 3-0, to win soccer's World Cup on Sunday. From Calais to Toulouse, from Brest to Grenoble, millions of French are brachiating and jubilating. All this, and Bastille Day, too. Quite a frisson for the French Fourth of July. Some are calling this victory the greatest thing to happen in France since liberation from the Nazis in 1944. Hyperbole? Name something really terrific that has happened to France lately. We'll wait.

ATLANTIC CITY - When last we saw these three, they were finishing off the late great departed HQ Nightclub and Beach Club at Revel Casino Hotel with one more party to remember. Wearing HQ Strong T-shirts, the crew from the highly successful nightclub inside the disastrously failed casino-hotel danced through the casino floor and into, well, suspended animation. Part of a core group kept on the HQ payroll for months, the marketing host team of Justin Jordan, 35, Zach Seidman, 33, and Ryan Featherman, 26, has reemerged post-Revel as independent marketers under the PopFeeder brand, focusing for now on a Daylife Saturday pool party at the Chelsea hotel, A Summer of Sundays DJ series at Golden Nugget's Haven, and looking for the next HQ to, as they say, float their champagne kayak girl.

The way local residents carried on about Britain's royal wedding yesterday, you might have thought Prince Andrew had married the daughter of a Philadelphia bricklayer. From dawn until dark, area Anglophiles celebrated the marriage of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, now the Duke and Duchess of York. There was champagne at breakfast, champagne at lunch, champagne in the evening. The Palace Hotel imported Buckingham Palace guards and blasted a tape recording of the Westminster Abbey bells over its outdoor loudspeakers; the Dickens Inn offered a "Royal Wedding Cocktail," and the English-Speaking Union re-enacted the wedding with a mystery bride.

Remember those effervescent eves of yesteryear when we'd toast the new year with out-of-season strawberries drowning in champagne? How quaint. Auld Lang Syners are now more likely to trade strawberries for strawberry liqueur. Or spike their champagne with plum-flavored vodka, strawberry-infused rum, Oprah's favorite pomegranate liqueur, or any number of libations from around the world. "There's been an explosion of customer interest in liqueurs to add to sparkling wines," says Robert Peters, a consultant at the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board's Wine and Spirits Shop in Ardmore.

Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, a California vintner by avocation, is making Americans an offer he hopes they won't refuse: He's asking them to drink his champagne out of cans. The new bubbly - named Sofia, after Coppola's moviemaking daughter - comes in individual servings of about six ounces. It's offered in a demure raspberry-color, plastic-lined can with a straw attached to the side, just like Juicy Juice. It sells for $5 a pop - or $20 for a four-pack, which comes packaged in a hexagonal foil carton, also raspberry in color, with circles like champagne bubbles cut out of its sides.

The real Broad Brush finally showed up on the race track last night. Unlike the raucous colt who bolted in the Pennsylvania Derby and still won, this Broad Brush ran straight and true in last night's $500,000 Meadowlands Cup at the East Rutherford, N.J., track. He took the lead from Peruvian pace-setter Lutz on the Meadowlands Racetrack's backstretch and opened up through the stretch under Angel Cordero Jr. to win by 3 3/4 lengths. In a blanket finish behind Robert Meyerhoff's 3-year-old, Skip Trial finished second, a nose ahead of Brooklyn Handicap winner Little Missouri.

CHAMPAGNE, France - Tiny bubbles rise and burst as Nathalie Domi pours out glasses of her finest champagne. My wife and I sip and nod approval. It is superb. Flavorful, crisp, and sparkling. We are visiting Champagne Domi Moreau, Nathalie's family company, one of the smallest and most traditional producers in the Champagne region of northeastern France. Many tourists just spend a day in Champagne's main cities, Reims or Epernay. They go to famous champagne houses like Veuve Clicquot and enjoy a tasting.

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. - For the last few years, ski resorts in cowboy country - and the skiers who love them - have been riding a bucking bronc. Huge dumps of snow blanketed slopes in the up years; in down years, late snow and warmer days cast a pall over the industry. At Steamboat Resort, in western Colorado, hard-core skiers were over the moon in 2008 when monster storms dropped 433 inches of snow on the slopes. But disbelief followed when the next winter brought fewer, weaker storms and half as much snow.

The decorators at the Union League were hanging gold drapes Monday afternoon. The cooks downstairs were poaching 150 lobsters. Up the street, the staff at the Ritz-Carlton 10 Arts Bistro & Lounge were polishing champagne flutes and laying in bottles of the bubbly by the hundred. And by Tuesday morning, another dining room on South Broad Street will fill with the aroma of turkey sausage and buttermilk biscuits, made from scratch, and offer New Year's Eve breakfast to a few hundred guests on a budget.

Stories about Winston Churchill's fondness for food and drink are legendary, but easily misunderstood, according to a new book by Cita Stelzer called Dinner with Churchill: Policy-Making at the Dinner Table . There was the time in 1931, when he was being treated at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City after being hit by a car. He asked his doctor for the following Prohibition-era "prescription": "This is to certify that the post-accident convalescence...

Buzz: Hey Marnie, what's the deal with all the fake wine out there? Marnie: I have no clue, Buzz. I've never heard of such a thing. Buzz: Well, they had stacks of the stuff at the store yesterday. When I asked a clerk where they kept the champagne, he showed me a shelf of hoity-toity French stuff for $40 a bottle. I said that was too pricey for me, and was going to grab a cheaper one, but he said it wasn't "real" champagne. You'd think the labels would say "artificial wine," but I couldn't even find a list of ingredients.

With her added business acumen, including her realization that young people enjoyed wearing old Army jackets, the business flourished, their daughter, Sara Garonzik, said.

LOS ANGELES - Norma Zimmer, the "Champagne Lady" of TV's "The Lawrence Welk Show" and a studio singer who worked with Frank Sinatra and other pop stars, has died. She was 87. Zimmer died peacefully Tuesday at her Brea, Calif., home, Welk's son, Larry, said yesterday. Larry Welk didn't know the cause of death but said that Zimmer had been living an active life in recent years. "She was one of the most gracious, likable people that anyone could ever meet," he said. "The other people on the show, to this day, just respect and love her. " Zimmer performed on Welk's network show and later his syndicated show from 1960 to 1982 as the "Champagne Lady," the title Welk traditionally gave to his orchestra's lead female singer.

BUFFALO - Moments after Sabres coach Lindy Ruff called for Mike Richards to be suspended for Game 7 tomorrow night, I found Flyers chairman Ed Snider sitting alone in the team's dressing room, orange socks matching his orange tie, reading from a scoresheet. "Oh," Snider said, with a wry smirk, "is he whining again?" Well, Ruff wasn't exactly singing Shuffle Off to - or in this case from - Buffalo after yesterday's 5-4 overtime loss forced a Game 7. The smirk Ruff wore after Richards complained about his team "getting away with murder" following the chippiness of Game 4 was now a somber monotone as he reeled off a list of the wounded on his team, from scorer Jason Pominville to defenseman Andrej Sekera to, now, Tim Connolly, who was rammed into the boards headfirst from behind by Richards with a little over 6 minutes left in the second period.
